Lee and Katagiri battle to a draw; WBO Oriental super bantamweight title remains vacant

By Victor Lee

Headlining the fourth installment of the annual Korea vs. Japan showdown on Sunday at the New Ansan University Gymnasium in Ansan, South Korea, OPBF #2 ranked super bantamweight Jaesung Lee (16-3-1, 9 KO) and Japan #12 ranked featherweight Akihiko Katagiri (13-7-1, 4 KO) squared off for the vacant WBO Oriental super bantamweight title. While neither contender has yet established themselves among the elite in Asia, both have faced world-class competition abroad.

At first glance, current Korean super bantam champion Lee, who first seized this title in 2006 and regained it in April of this year (with a brief stint as IBF Pan Pacific super bantam champ in 2011), appeared the prohibitive favorite. (more…)

ShoBox returns December 6

By Karl Freitag

With ESPN2′s Friday Night Fights and Boxeo Telemundo done for the year, and Showtime’s “ShoBox” series on hiatus recently, there has been a real void for televised boxing on Friday nights in the U.S.

However, the landscape is now a little less barren thanks to Mayweather Promotions, who will promote a December 6 ShoBox telecast headlined by middleweight J’Leon Love (15-0, 8 KOs), super featherweight Mickey Bey Jr. (18-1-1, 9 KOs) and super middleweight Badou Jack (15-0-1, 10 KOs) against opponents to be named.

Nielsen to face Pinzon on November 16

WBA/WBO Intercontinental middleweight beltholder Patrick Nielsen (20-0, 9 KOs) will defend his titles against Jose Pinzon (24-5, 15 KOs) from Mexico on November 16. For the first time in his career, Nielsen will fight in Albertslund, Denmark. “To fight in Albertslund will be the biggest moment of my career and I will not allow Pinzon to spoil it,” he stated. “I have a lot of respect for him. Mexicans have a great boxing education and tradition. They are aggressive and tough, but so am I. There is no way he can beat me in front of my home fans. I’m in great shape already, I’ve trained hard with Joey Gamache, and I’m ready for a big night of boxing in my old hood!”

More on a possible Hopkins-Mayweather showdown

By Karl Freitag
Photo: Tom Hogan – Hoganphotos/Golden Boy

The topic of a possible legends showdown between Bernard “The Alien” Hopkins and Floyd Mayweather was brought up during Hopkins’ post fight press conference following his win over Karo Murat on Saturday night. “I’m available,” said Hopkins. “You give me to May of 2014 to make 160, that fight is on!” Hopkins also made it clear that he’s not chasing a Mayweather fight.

Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer added “there’s a lot of names out there. I have a plan. I know what I’d like to do, but I’m not going to tell you guys who it’s gonna be because that would be pretty stupid negotiating on my part. I know how to get big fights done, I like to get big fights done because I enjoy it and the fans enjoy it and that’s what gets me going, so I was telling Bernard one thing that is out there is the number 50. With Bernard approaching 50 and Floyd Mayweather approaching 50-0, which is historic as well. We all know Rocky Marciano retired at 49-0, and so Floyd is approaching a 50 number and Floyd is approaching a 50 number and that sort of gets my promotional juices going.”

Hopkins-Murat/Quillin-Rosado Full Report

IBF light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins (54-6-2, 32 KOs) successfully defended his title for the first time with a lopsided unanimous decision win over mandatory challenger Karo Murat (25-3-1, 15 KOs) on Saturday night at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The scores were 119-108 (twice) and 117-110. In the co-feature, Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin (30-0, 22 KOs) overcame a stiff challenge from WBO #9-ranked “King” Gabriel Rosado (21-7, 13 KOs) to defend his WBO middleweight title for a second time. Rosado suffered a deep cut on his left eyelid, and the bout was stopped 40 seconds into the tenth round. World-ranked Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (30-0, 30 KOs) kept his perfect knockout streak alive with a fourth round KO over rugged trial horse Nicolai Firtha (21-11-1, 8 KOs) in a scheduled ten round heavyweight bout for Wilder’s WBC Continental Americas title. All three bouts were televised on Showtime Championship Boxing on a card promoted by Golden Boy Promotions. (more…)

Shimmell dominant, wins USBO cruiser title

By Lindy Lindell
Photos: Bob Ryder

Saturday night at the DeltaPlex in Grand Rapids, Michigan, on a card promoted by his grandfather, Dennis Shimmell, Sr, Jordan Shimmell won the USBO Cruiserweight Title with a near shutout of veteran Galen Brown 41-23-1. The 12-0 Shimmell (wisely) lost weight to campaign as a cruiserweight, and pounded out a never-in-doubt win over vet Brown, who had little to answer with beyond wild, winging shots that rarely found their mark.

Dominant but not overwhelming. Had he pressed the action more, Shimmell might have scored a knockout, and almost did in round three, but, unaccountably, Shimmell, whether concerned with going 10 rounds or exhausting himself, seemed content to win every round by boxing his man—which he did easily. Shimmell, from nearby Hudsonville, controlled the fight throughout, and won by shutout scores on two cards. (more…)

Servania crushes Concepcion

By Robert Coster

Is unbeaten super bantamweight Genesis Servania (23-0, 9 KOs) the heir to Filipino superstars Manny Pacquiao and Nonito Donaire? The 22-year-old Filipino prospect certainly looked the part Saturday night at the Cebu City Waterfront Hotel & Casino in Cebu City, Philippines, scoring a frightening second round KO over former WBA interim champion Rafael “Torito” Concepcion (18-6-1, 8 KOs) of Panama. Five years ago Concepcion had stunned Filipino fans winning the WBA interim belt by stopping unbeaten local favorite AJ Banal and returning to the Philippines he had promised to do the same to Servania. Concepcion went has far as to bring a pillow to the weigh-in as a message to Servania that he would be “put to sleep.” (more…)

“Boxing Under the Tent” is a knockout

By Mark Vaz

In the main event of the “Boxing Under the Tent” card at the Irish Cultural Center in Canton, MA, Michael Owen McLaughlin improved to 6-1-1 (3 KOs) with a unanimous decision in an all-out war with MMA cross-over Sergio Cabrera (0-2) of Somerville, MA in a six-round middleweight bout. The former Irish National Amateur champ from Donegal, now living in Dorchester, MA, outboxed the wild swinging Cabrera for three rounds, dropping the Brazilian transplant in the third with a picture-perfect right hook. Cabrera, however, would have none of it and came out swinging again in the fourth, dropping McLaughlin twice and nearly finishing him. Following cornerman and former title challenger Sean Mannion’s advice, McLaughlin returned to boxing and won the last two stanzas in exciting fashion, earning the decision at 57-54 across the board.

Gwayana wins SA title on a technical decision

By Ron Jackson

Mfundo Gwayana won the South African junior flyweight title on a fifth round technical decision over defending champion Bongani Silila at the Nedevana Hall near King Williamstown on Sunday afternoon. Gwayana suffered a bad cut on his forehead after an accidental clash of heads in the fourth round and referee Lulama Mtya stopped the fight in the fifth round on advice from the ringside doctor. The bout then went to the scorecards in terms of the rules as four rounds had been completed. Two judges scored it 40-36 and the third 39-37 all in favour of Gwayana. In an untidy affair Silila (12-4-2, 8 KOs) spent most of the fight circling around the ring and holding when coming in close. Gwayana (17-6-3, 8 KOs) gained some sort of revenge after losing on a first round stoppage against Silila in September last year for the interim SA junior flyweight title.

Tijuana’s PM Promotions let by former super flyweight champion Diego “Pelucho” Morales was at it again last Friday night when it presented its third edition of “Sangre Nueva”, a short but to the point fight card featuring his stable’s newest stars. In the main event, son of former world champion Jose Luis Ramirez, southpaw super featherweight “Zurdo” Jose Luis Ramirez Jr (3-0-2, 1KO) had a tough time but was able to take the unanimous decision over Hector Garcia (0-1), both of Tijuana, over six rounds.

Ramirez began fighting from a distance and scoring well with straight lefts. Once in close, Ramirez did some work to the body with but Garcia also had his chance to score heavy leather to the mid-section. Garcia was the more aggressive of the two in the second as he stalked the taller Ramirez around the ring but in the third and forth, Ramirez went back to working from the distance and only at times getting on the inside.

Full Report: Rosas tops Rosas

After WBC lightweight challenger Ameth Diaz did not make it to Tijuana at least three days in advance as mandated by the IBF of his title challenger against champion Miguel “Titere” Vazquez, Zanfer Promotions had no choice to promote the bantamweight ten rounder between Daniel “Bad Boy” Rosas and former world champion Alberto “Topo” Rosas to the main event of this past Saturday’s fight card held at the Tecate Box Tour tent located the Caliente Racetrack. The Azteca channel broadcast fight was won by “Bad Boy” Rosas (17-0-1, 11KOs) of Mexico City with a highly unpopular unanimous decision over the hard charging “Topo” Rosas (28-8, 27KOs) of Tepic, Nayarit, Mexico.

After a successful run on a Mexican TV reality series, the now a bit more known “Bad Boy” returned to his boxing career against arguably the most accomplished of his opponents in “Topo” who captured the IBF super flyweight title back in 2010 with a TKO win over African Simphiwe Nongquayi. Rosas has faced such former champs as Cristian Mijares, Fernando Montiel and Rodrigo Guerrero as well as other heavy hitters. (more…)

Fresh off his very impressive 4th-round stoppage win over former WBA welterweight champ Vyacheslav Senchenko, unbeaten Kell Brook has wasted no time in calling out some big names. Brook, now 31-0(21) told Sky Sports that he wants “the massive fights.”

And after that go for Wladimir Klitschko, unify all titles and become undisputed heavyweight champion.” Wilder is currently rated WBC #3.

Hopkins dominates Murat; Quillin, Wilder victorious

48-year-old IBF light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins (54-6-2, 32 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over mandatory challenger Karo Murat (25-2-1, 15 KOs) on Saturday night at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. Murat was busier early on, but Hopkins became more aggressive in round four and was willing to trade with Murat. Hopkins kissed Murat twice during a clinch in round five. Murat was deducted a point by referee Steve Smoger for hitting on the break in round seven. By round eight, Hopkins seemed to be looking for the KO, showing total distain for Murat’s punching power. Murat landed some good shots in round nine, but Hopkins looked much fresher down the stretch. Hopkins could be heard saying “I need the knockout” in his corner before the final round, and he tried, hurting Murat several times. Murat slowed Hopkins’ attack with some late fouls. Scores were 117-110, 119-108, 119-108.

WBO middleweight champion Peter Quillin (30-0, 22 KOs) retained his title with a tenth round TKO over Gabriel Rosado (21-7, 13 KOs). Quillin got off to a fast start and dropped Rosado in round two, but Rosado rocked Quillin at the end of round four and got back into the fight. The bout turned again when a Quillin jab opened up a cut over Rosado’s left eye in round nine and the fight was stopped due to that cut in round ten. Time was :40. Rosado complained bitterly about the stoppage.

Unbeaten heavyweight Deontay Wilder moved to 30-0 with 30 KOs after demolishing Nicolai Firtha (21-11-1, 8 KOs) in four rounds. A game Firtha came out aggressively, but was dropped twice in round one. Wilder laid him out in round four with a left hook. (more…)

Farmer dominates Perez in Philly

Friday night at the National Guard Armory in Northeast Philadelphia, rising super featherweight prospect Tevin “The American Idol” Farmer (13-4-1, 2 KOs’s) put on quite a show with a masterful eight round unanimous decision victory over late replacement Camilo Prerez (9-1).

The title fight was scrapped when Trader came down with an injury. Promoter Greg Robinson and veteran matchmaker Renee Aiken desperately sought a suitable opponent who could legitimately take the fight on short notice.

Kell Brook has vowed to prove he’s ready for his IBF World Welterweight title shot when he taken on former world champion Vyacheslav Senchenko at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield today, live on AWE and AWEtv.com.

Saturday odds: Hopkins talking KO, will he get it?

"I need a knockout" says B-Hop. "I need to get this itch off my back"

By Karl Freitag

IBF light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins is a prohibitive favorite to defeat mandatory challenger Karo Murat tonight on Showtime in Atlantic City. Hopkins, or “The Alien” as he wants to be called now, is -600 to -1000 at various online sportsbooks, while Murat is +400 to +600. Perhaps a more interesting line, with the 48-year-old Hopkins talking knockout in his prefight comments (despite no KOs since 2004), is “Hopkins to win by KO, TKO or Disqualification,” which would pay +500 if he stops Murat early.

Also on that card, WBO middleweight champion Peter Quillin is -700 to -1200 to retain his belt against Gabriel Rosado (+450 to +600), and Deontay Wilder is favored by as much as -10000 at one book and more commonly -3300. Wilder (29-0, 29 KOs) to win by “KO, TKO or Disqualification” is -1200 at best, and if he goes the full rounds for the first time commonly +1000. Firtha to win? As much as +2300 but +1000 to +1400 most places. (more…)
